Trip Summary

  • Madrid

    In the last few years, Madrid has gained the reputation of being one of Europe's most active and attractive cities for its nightlife and cultural activities. Capital of Spain since 1562, Madrid's museums host, among others, Dalis, Miros and Picasso's Guernica. Madrid is a city of great contrasts: the Old City, the Madrid of the Hapsburgs, the Royal Palace, the Puerta de Alcala, the Retiro Park. At night, the city changes gears with its famous Madrid nightlife. The city's endless energy is hard to resist, and its sociable style invites you to jump right in.

    Visit Palacio Real, Plaza Mayor, Prado Museum, Puerta del Sol, Puerta de Alcala, Plaza de Cibeles, Gran Via, Madrid Cathedral, Thyssen-Bornemisza and Reina Sofia Museums and so much more!

The symbol of Segovia is the Roman aqueduct built during 1st and 2nd centuries by the Romans to bring water to the town. The castle Alcazar is located at the tip of a narrow promontory and has a history of about 10 centuries. The central plaza is dominated by the grand Gothic cathedral.

  • Salamanca

    Finding its origins in pre-Roman times, Salamanca is known as "La Ciudad Dorada", exposing buildings facades made of special sandstone with unique golden glow. You may admire the old Romanesque cathedral, with four grand pinnacles and the apse frescoed by the Renaissance painter Florentino; nearby, the new cathedral combines Late Gothic architecture and Plateresque style. The nightlife is highly animated, especially by the students learning at the second oldest university in the world.

  • Burgos

    Burgos is a significant Northern Spanish touristic destination, hosting an impressive collection of ecclesiastical monuments. Most of them reflect the Gothic style, starting with the Cathedral - similar to the French cathedral of Bourges - and the monasteries of Las Huelgas and Miraflores.
